Luis and Julia, have developed the well know and beautiful style of Ayacucho painting. This style consist on drawing delicate flowers and painting them with bright colors that transmits the joy of the work they do. This technique can be found represented in the painting and the embroidering of the region.
Each piece is molded by hand using a mass they previously prepared with plaster, flour and water. They make designs like birds, butterflies, hearts and many other beautiful hand made hangers.
For us it is important to keep this technique alive as a symbol of the joy for living, and that after the internal terrorism that hit Ayacucho so hard in the 80′, this region can still offer us pretty things.
